Tips for Ideal Flight Selection

FOR RETREATS HELD AT OUR PLAYA GIGANTE, NICARAGUA LOCATION:

  • Choose to fly into either Managua (MGA) or Liberia, Costa Rica (LIR), as each option is equal distance from the beachside hotel. In our experience, Liberia, Costa Rica is a better airport experience and usually has more flight options to choose from.
  • If you choose Managua, ONLY SELECT AVIANCA, COPA OR AEROMEXICO flights as the other commercial airlines have not resumed flights to Managua at this time and your flight WILL BE CANCELED despite their promotions and appearance of available flights.  Trust us…we are anxiously awaiting the return of more flight options into Managua, so we will update this page once it becomes a reliable option.
  • Late arrivals into Managua are not an issue, however we do not recommend your departure flight to be any earlier than 10am.
  • If you choose Liberia (LIR), we do not recommend arriving later than 7pm or departing earlier than 11am to keep the border crossing process easy, as the border is closed between 11:45PM and 6AM.

FOR RETREATS HELD AT OUR PLAYA GRANDE, COSTA RICA LOCATION:

  • You will fly into Liberia, Costa Rica (LIR), our hotel is less than an hour from this airport.
  • Given the close proximity, flight arrival and departure times are flexible and easy to accommodate.
